The glazer’s bad dream

Glazer’s bad dream © Steven Willard

The outbuilding was some way off the road. What caught my eye was the reflection of the sun off the broken glass. As photographers we are constantly searching for interesting elements; lines, textures, contrasts, and tones, and hopefully meaning*, which offerers the biggest challenge. Does the image serve as a metaphor for something deeper?

*Minor White asked us to not just, “photograph a thing for what it is, but for what else it is”, which I believe is the best advice to photographers anyone ever offered, “f8 and be there”, a close second.
